On today’s episode of THE FOOD SEEN, we’re joined by Christine Haughney, Senior Investigations Editor for Zero Point Zero Production, and her hard hitting online video series, FOOD CRIMES. After years as a news reporter for The New York Times and Washington Post, Christine brought her skills and empirical research to Food Republic. In “The Hunt for Illegal Seafood” she brings a South African fish smuggler to justice, “Mad About Saffron” speaks to the politics behind a controversial spice of the ages and it’s possible terrorist ties, and “PB & Jail” pins blame on a CEO’s inexcusable apathy towards the release of a food-borne pathogen into everyday food supply. From these cases, good arises, with new governing acts and laws put in place for protocol and safety, and a greater sense of how much food really effects the world.
